My 2yr old how a foul odor coming from her nose that smells like rotting flesh what could be the cause of this?

Something's in there: If the smell is that bad, the usual cause is that the child stuck something up her nose (could be a piece of food). Sometimes it's a toy up the nose, such as a bead or a button. A pediatrician, an ear-nose-throat doctor, or an ER doctor can look up the nose to see what's up there. It could also be sinusitis without anything stuck up there, but the odor should not be so bad with just sinusitis. ...Read more

Your previous turbinate surgery and septoplasty may have reduced the total nasal mucosal area and thus more susceptible to loss of smell. Stop the hydrocodone. Your family physician can prescribe a mild steroid inhaler for faster recovery. ...Read more

Sinus infection?: It sounds like you may have a sinus infection. Try using nasal saline several times a day or using a neti pot. Decongestants may also help or antihistamines if you think this may be related to allergies. If it persists for more than 3 weeks then see a doctor since you may have an infection requiring antibiotics. I hope you are feeling better soon. ...Read more

Don't: Don't know if she had poor hygiene or if there was a vaginal discharge. I havn't heard of a yeast infection smelling like rotten cheese. If she did have a markedly malodorous vaginal discharge and you elected to put your penis in there anyway, have no idea what type of pathogens you may have exposed yourself to.
Just because there is a hole, it doesn't mean you have to poke it. If the woman smelled so bad that you were both overwhelmed and disgusted; this should have raised some big red flags. Or a big red stop sign. If concerned about contracting an std, recommend that you see your doctor. ...Read more
